When and how did you start yoga?
I started yoga about a year and a half ago after dating a yoga teacher and being really impressed with her strength, energy and ability to cope with adversity. After we went separate ways I found one of the only things to really clear my mind was yoga and cold showers.
I mainly practice Ashtanga at the moment.... Mysore style.
I find that my singing has improved greatly from the vinyasa aspect of my practice.
What is your most memorable yoga moment?
There are many incremental improvements that I've noticed in my own practice that are noteworthy, but the moment that comes to mind is the first time I tried Ashtanga. I had probably done a handful of yoga classes up until that point and when I tried it, my world blew up. Complete game changer. I felt so high afterwards, also a bit broken. I found it hard to believe that anyone could tolerate that experience on a regular basis without being superhuman.
